    personally, I like the "satin" look of the clear coat on Ws6 wheels. Stripped looks too shiny to me...kinda' like fake gold....but to each, his own....!

    Mine has probably been used less than 5 hrs total and is about shot. everytime I try to use it, it throws red chunks of foam everywhere. I bought this entire kit for $24, about the same price for a powerball, and love it:

    Don't get me wrong for "in-between-polishing" / quick cleaning, I'm sure the powerball is sufficient. And maybe works great on chrome, but I have aluminum wheels with no clear.

    Can you really notice the difference between billet and standard mothers metal polish? I've used the standard stuff for years and just bought the billet this w/e. I can't really tell much difference, especially for the $4 vs $15. But I haven't experiemented with it enough yet!!

    Stock WS6 wheels should be treated just like your paint....Their clearcoated.

    No power balls,,,,No Aluminum Polish,,,,No wet sanding....

    Just treat them as you would treat your paint..........
    polish.....wax....
